Full-Day On The Road To Hana
You can’t visit Maui and miss out on experiencing the illusive Road to Hana! Although, there are many different versions of enjoying the Road to Hana, we suggest our version for the best honeymoon day trip to Hana ever. To avoid late morning to afternoon tourist traffic on the Hana Highway, try to reach the historic Town of Paia on the North Shore by 7am. Here, you can pick up a coffee and a light breakfast to fuel your morning at the famous Anthony’s Coffee Shop. Approximately 20-25 minutes east of Paia, make your second stop at Twin Falls (mile marker 2) for a fresh coconut, locally baked goods, and a leisurely walk/light hike and swim in the waterfalls. Once you get back on the road, keep driving east towards Hana Town, and try not to get sucked into stopping at every bridge and view….if you do, you wont have enough time to explore as much once you reach the Hana area. Next, make a stop at the Garden of Eden Arboretum (mile marker 10). This is a great place to take photos and check out native Hawaiian flora and fauna. There you find a 100 year old Mango tree, tons of bamboo, ocean and Puohokamoa waterfall views, and a super cute gift shop with local art and jewelry.
Make your next stop at the Nahiku Marketplace (mile marker 29) for a snack or a delicious Maui taco, and another chance to pick up some local gift items. Make your next picture perfect stop at the incredible Wai’anapanapa State Park (mile marker 32), where you’ll have a chance to explore Hawaiian history, a black sand beach, and an ancient birthing pool. Hana Town (mile marker 34) is a quiet, traditional Hawaiian village with many sights to see, all tucked away. There you can explore farmers markets, galleries, a wonderful Thai restaurant, and Hana Bay. We suggest that you either spend some time at Hamoa Beach (mile marker 50), or continue on to 7 Sacred Pools at the Haleakala National Park in Kipahulu (mile marker 42). After Kipahulu, continue on the road towards Palapala Ho’omaui Church (mile marker 41), and explore Old Hawaii with gorgeous views, quiet vibes, and Charles Lindbergh’s grave.

Spend a Day on the North Shore of Maui
The North Shore is one of the most breathtakingly gorgeous areas of Maui, and one of the most beautiful communities in all the Hawaiian Islands. Spend a dreamy day on the North Shore of Maui, feel immersed in the community, and make picture perfect memories that you and your loved one will always treasure. We suggest that you start in the bohemian Paia Town, and hit up Mana Foods for coconut water, a Maui kombucha, the salad bar, and snacks for the beach.
After perusing the organic-lined shelves of Mana, make your way to Baldwin Beach Park. Once you find parking, head over to the far right of the lifeguard stand where you’ll find the most beautiful swimming cove. Here, you can relax and spend some time swimming in the gentle waves and soaking up the warm Maui sunshine with the North Shore community. Post beach-time, you can head back to Paia Town to check out the funky and inspiring collection of gift shops, surf shops, galleries and eateries. Then, you can beach-hop and venture east towards Ho’okipa Beach Park to watch or partake in sunbathing, swimming, surfing, windsurfing, kite boarding and stand up paddling. For an extra romantic Maui sunset, make a stop for a cocktail and pupus at Mama’s Fish House in Kuau, one of the most famous restaurants in all the Hawaiian Islands.
